Starting in Spring
You're Probably Wondering What Happens at Orientation!
Our Spring international Orientation is called Glo-Bull Beginnings and is packed with a ton of great information to help you transition into the University of South Florida and the U.S.! We know you have unique needs in coming to USF and we want to answer all of your questions to help you feel right at home at USF, and throughout your Orientation experience. With all of this information coming soon, we encourage you to check your USF email frequently before your Orientation date.
Your mandatory arrival date is Tuesday, January 2, 2018. You may arrive before this date, but will need to arrange accommodations for any day before January 2. Beginning January 2, international students who will be living on-campus for the Spring semester will be able to move into their residence hall room. However, if you would like to do this you must log into the housing portal using your NetID and password to submit an Early Arrival Request Form and pay any additional associated fees. If you are not planning to live on campus, you will need to arrange accommodations for you and any guests attending the Glo-Bull Beginnings experience.
Glo-Bull Beginnings Dashboard
We know that you have a lot of items to complete before starting classes. We are here to help! We are excited to share the Glo-Bull Beginnings Dashboard for all international students. You can login using your NetID and password to see all of the items that need to be completed prior to arrival, as well as the status of those items. We encourage you to complete as much of this dashboard as possible prior to arrival!
